Editor: Ucali (Only for chapter 1)
[TLN: Before anything else, I would like to inform you all that this series was written in third-person narration. Furthermore, statements or lines inside parentheses are actually the thoughts that the MC (so far, I’ve only seen his thoughts) has inside his head.]
“So, I went to this coffee shop the other day, and it was really good―”
“Hey, let’s go to the arcade afterwards.”
“Oh, shoot, I have to go for my club activities!”
As soon as the school day is over, the classmates start to come alive, and You Hasakura, who was sitting in a corner of the classroom, lets out a bored sigh. (TLN: Yes, MC’s first name is “You”, now get used to it)
(I feel like an idiot…)
For You, there is nothing more boring than school life, and he would have quit school long ago if his parents hadn’t forced him to stay.
He also thinks that going to school is a disadvantage because it takes up a lot of his time.
He couldn’t be bothered to talk to his noisy classmates, and he didn’t need to learn anything in class.
So every day, all You could think about was how to convince his parents to let him quit school.
No one in the class approached You, who was not very sociable and had a cold demeanor when spoken to.
He was always on the verge of getting a failing mark on his tests, and he wasn’t very good at sports either, which made his classmates think of him as a negative person or a dropout.
Since neither of them is willing to compromise, You was inevitably isolated from the rest of the class.
(―Well then, let’s go home now since there are no more people around.)
Since his classmates are no longer around, You slowly got up from his chair.
A quiet classroom with no one in it.
There was something magical about the atmosphere, and even You, who hated school, liked this space.
However, if he stayed here for too long, he would have to talk to the teacher who usually comes to lock the door, so he regrettably decides to leave.
(―Hmm? Those three people are…)
As You walked towards the shoe rack, he found the three students who have been the talk of the school lately talking to each other in the hallway.
One of them was a beautiful, innocent and dainty girl with long, beautiful black hair.
Everyone admires her as she has a dignified face with a hint of strength.
The other one is a gentle and cute baby-faced beautiful girl with fluffy and beautiful blonde hair.
She is petite and looks like a little animal that anyone would want to protect.
The last one is an ordinary guy who looks like he could be anywhere at a glance.
He doesn’t have a particularly distinctive face, nor is he good at studying or sports.
However, for some reason, this seemingly ordinary guy was favored by two of the most beautiful girls in the school.
The two most beautiful girls are, of course, the innocent and pretty girl in You’s line of sight and the cute baby-faced girl.
To be honest, You doesn’t understand why these two beautiful girls are fond of the guy.
But it didn’t matter to You, who had no interest in other people.
So he pretended that he didn’t see the three of them talking to each other and tried to leave the place.
But as he turned on his heel, he heard a voice that stopped him in his tracks.
“―Are you going out with Nemoto-san, not me…?”
What he heard was a cute voice with a strong tone.
You, who knew the voices of the three of them, realized who said that voice.
(Is this a shuraba, or…?) [TLN: “shuraba” means love quarrel.”
Looking back, You saw the guy trying to reach out to the beautiful blonde girl, Akimi Marin, who was about to cry.
However, she backed away as if to escape from the guy, and opened her mouth with a smile and tears in her eyes.
“I see, I understand. I hope you two will be happy together. I’ll leave you two at it.”
“Ah! Wait, Marin-chan!”
Without listening to the guy’s words of restraint, Marin rushed towards the direction of You.
When he realized this, You felt uncomfortable because he saw her being dumped, and hurriedly hid himself behind a wall.
Then Marin came around the corner and ran right past of him, unaware of You’s presence.
Then she went straight up the stairs.
As they passed each other, You saw her profile and felt an indescribable feeling.
He wondered what the guy would do, so he peeked out from the wall and looked at where the guy was.
The guy who Marin ran away from― Haruki Kinoshita, was just talking to the beautiful black-haired girl and didn’t seem that he would chase after her.
(Well, if you’ve chosen that side, it’s right not to go after her…)
A black-haired beautiful girl, Kasumi Nemoto, was the girl who was chosen. If the guy had gone after Marin it would be a bad move.
Kasumi, who would have been his girlfriend, would’ve felt uncomfortable and insecure, while Marin will be left with an unrequited love.
There was nothing he could do about it except hope that she would recover naturally.
There was no point in staying here, You thought so, and stepped out to go back home.
However― Marin’s profile from earlier was burned into his mind, and he knew that if he continued to go home, he would have strange thoughts for the rest of the day.
You stopped moving forward after he stepped out of his hiding place, and let his thoughts run on the spot.
And then, he headed towards the stairs, wondering why he was even meddling with this.
Translator’s Comments: I was planning to release this on July 17 but I want to release at least chapter 1 for now so that I could solidify myself as the translator of the series and not get sniped from me. Chapter 2 to 10 will be on July 17. For new readers on our website, that’s also my 18th birthday so yay lol.
This had the same author of the other series that I’m working on which is Lonely Otaku. I love this new series from him too and it looks like I’ll continue to work on it as long as I can. Also, this series reached #1 daily ranking in syosetu on July 11, 2021. Let’s find out if it truly deserved rank 1. With that said, I’ll see you all on my birthday which is when this series will get updated again!
